(Slate)   Dear Prudence: Our 7 year-old daughter regularly goes to sleep over at her friend's house. On a routine Google search, I learned the girl's father was a sex offender; he says he was 18 and had a 14 year-old girlfriend. What should I do?   (slate.com) divider line 265

Serious Black: Drug him and rape him in his sleep. Then when he comes to, say he raped you and put him through an expensive trial where he will try in vain to defend himself but fail miserably since he's already a sex offender. Then watch him rot in jail for all eternity.


Okay, Eric Cartman.

Why? Part of the appeal of farking a 7-year old is that they can't get pregnant.

To me an 18 year old having a 14 year old girlfriend is a little odd in itself.

He has a point (I think).

Is the penalty for clearly and willfully bearing false witness anywhere near the penalty of the crime of which they lied about? Perhaps, it should be equal to it.

A senior in high school and a freshman in high school?  That's.. very nearly as normal as anything gets.

Because the point of the registry isn't to help the public get accurate info; it's to continue punishing the sinner.

Only to jealous senior socialite b*tches.  I dated a freshman when I was a senior (I was 17) and I dated seniors when I was a freshman (they, alas, were 18 but it happened overseas).

Because Jesus says sex is evil and therefore sex offenders of all kinds are evil and should be turned into pariahs.

Or because politicians are farking retarded because farking retards elect them in. Who knows?

".. when he was 18 years old he had a 14-year-old girlfriend and the parents reported him when they found out they were having sex.  "

Without knowing more, I'd say these parents are the villains here for taking the lazy way out by involving the "authorities", who are generally incredibly ham-fisted when dealing with sensitive issues like this.

Nogale: Why can't the registry be updated to include the person's crimes?


Where is it that they don't? Does it vary by state? We live in OH. We get notices all the time because we live a few blocks from a homeless shelter. The notices are from the Sheriff's Office, but provided by a notification company out of CA. It lists a name, demographics/description, including specific tattoos (i.e. "Dragon"), the date of the offense, the date of conviction, and the description of the crime, and the relationship to the victims. It's all online as well.
 
2014-07-26 12:00:34 PM  
Our entire justice system is screwed...  Once a person had paid the price for their crime the world continues to punish them for years... Its bullshiat.  And its not just with sex offender registries.

Also, not teased for it.  Most likely because I wasn't "resorting" to anything.  The senior girls just angrily demanded to know why I skipped over them for a freshman, and the guys were all congratulatory.

The people doing the teasing would be the ones who's girlfriends are their own hands. And it is always like that throughout life for the most part. Even as you get older, the people that tease others about their spouse or SO are usually the ones that don't have anybody.

Threads like these are a good reminder that words actually mean something, and that most idiots use words incorrectly.

Pedophiles are into pre-pubescent children.  If your kid has boobs and/or grass on the field, then someone who wants to have sex with your child is a hebaphile, not a pedophile.  Your 7 year old is safe from someone who want to have sex with 14 year olds.

You should immediately assume that because he's an adult male, he's a peeo-predator and wants to molest your daughter, film it and put it on the internet. Because all adult males are that way according to society.

I don't know. Sometimes they won't prosecute the 18-year-olds with underaged girlfriends but I have trouble seeing any DA looking the other way if the older partner was 40.

Friend of mine got teased his Senior year for dating a Junior, and for reasons that were entirely unnecessary. Their birthdates were literally 3 weeks apart, on opposite sides of the cutoff for school registration.  She was the oldest Junior in school and he was one of the youngest Seniors.

IlGreven: Lina Medina sez "O RLY?" (It's Snopes, but they use a NSFW pic.)


While admitting that there is an extremely remote possibility that a 5 year old could ovulate, I remain dubious that she was in fact 5 (remote Andean villages of the early part of the 20th century were not renown for keeping accurate birth records).

That said: one, it's hardly normal or routine; two, it was a joke, Poindexter.

Go straightaway to his house.  Kill him and kill the brain-dead biatch that could have ever married such a monster.  Bonus points, if you don't leave clues you can adopt your daughter's friend and raise her in a household with some Christian values.

A lot of seniors and freshmen got together. Often times the feshmen were TF because it raised their perceived level of social standing. They got to ride in a car, get invited to parties years ahead of their friends.

Around here it just gives out general information about the crime. For example, in a situation like this story, for this guy the registry would say something along the lines of "Sex with a minor 14-16". They don't tell you when it happened, how old he was when it happened, or the situation. Like I said very general information. So you would look at something like that and think "Oh my god, this asshole likes teen girls", when if you had a little more info, like when it happened, you could figure out that it happened it happened when he was a teen himself and was more than likely a high school romance.

When those registries were established they often retroactively grabbed people to put on the list.  Someone might have had an offense from the 1970s or 1980s and if the registry established in the 1990s said "Everyone convicted of this list of crimes must register" all the older convictions put people on the list.
